England's Civic Universities and the Triumph of the Oxbridge Ideal.
Barnes, Sarah V.
History of Education Quarterly, v36 n3 p271-305 Fall 1996
Traces the changes in educational philosophy and practices that occurred within England's civic universities. The original intent of the state supported public universities was to provide professional and technical training for the growing middle class. Discusses the reasons that the civics eventually adopted the curriculum of the elite private schools. (MJP)
